Pegg reveals Paul storyline

SimonPegg.jpgSimon Pegg and Nick Frost have been keeping the storyline for their next film pretty much under wraps, until now. We had heard that it would be a road movie, a bit geeky, and that's about all we heard.

Now he's revealed what the plot is and it sounds a bizarre idea, but at the same time something quite original.

"Story revolves around two British slackers who after visiting Comic-Con go on a road trip to Area 51 where they encounter a small alien named Paul, who enlists them to help him find his way home."

There's not much more to tell other than that titbit from Variety through JoBlo, that and the fact that the usual director of the duo, Edgar Wright, is not directing this film due to other commitments such as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and instead Greg Mottola of Superbad fame will direct Paul.

Now I wonder if that's going to compromise the usual creative talents of the team and produce something that isn't as powerful as the previous two collaborations, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (Filmstalker review)? Missing their usual director might just be seen as a little bit of a negative.



Well that certainly sound s a bit different, looking forward to this one.

after Shaun and Hot Fuzz-i sincerely do believe that Simon and Nick can carry the film through despite losing Edgar Wright-because they are just good solid actors-with natural abilities to humour the viewers with British humour that transcends global boundaries-and the storyline for Paul is going to be silly but exceptionally entertaining
